Guest blogger Aaron Peck: I normally watch Idol with my friends, the Greenes. However, due to a tragic DVR malfunction, my ability to watch tonight's results show was almost placed in jeopardy. Luckily I had the presence of mind to make sure my own DVR at home was recording. Tragedy averted.
I'm rarely a fan of the results show. I'm never optimistic about my enjoyment of a Wednesday episode of American Idol. I firmly believe it's 55 minutes of pointless filler followed by the true reason people are watching. Maybe that's just me. I will give Seacrest this, over the years he has become a master of killing time.
